-Amazing athletes -Hardworking co-workers -It was a paycheck
-Unrealistic work/life balance (you'll be working 65+ hrs/week on avg.) -Below average salaries for degreed professionals. -Completely disorganized. -C Level management is lazy; provides no guidance when asked. -C Level management does not know what’s going on in the company. -C Level/senior management afraid to make decisions. Blames lower level staff when issues arise. -Buys races / other companies with no integration plans - resulting in further chaos. -Refuses to implement relevant technology. -Zero focus on employee morale / well-being. -Several employees have suffered panic attacks / stress conditions from being overworked. -Hires only young, inexperienced staff. -Sells-out for sponsorship dollars (HR was strong-armed and actually changed healthcare providers that drastically increased employee benefit costs in exchange for sponsorship revenues). -Does not execute sponsorship benefits to sponsors effectively - resulting in short-lived sponsorships, high turnover, and overall angry sponsors. -No career development or upward path. -So-called 'mentor' programs offered by some C-Levels only offered to selective staff (disgustingly nepotistic). -If you don't work in the events or merch departments, you won't have the opportunity to travel to any events (unless you know/report to the right people). -Tenured employees gossip, acknowledge and contribute to toxic environment. -Zero communication between departments / no collaboration. -No inter-office events or activities for employees. -New office is located at a very dangerous intersection, near the Buc's stadium. Traffic is horrible on game days, and supervisors will not let you leave before traffic buildup. -Office is located in an unsavory area of town (have actually seen homeless people squatting in the parking garage). -The company has it's own merch department (which is amazing), but CFO will not even provide 'Staff' shirts for office employees. -Management does not tolerate critique (again, non-collaborative). If you have differing opinions/management styles - prepare to get put in the 'dog house' or be fired. -Industry or trade knowledge/credentials are belittled if you're not senior management . -If you don't have kids/family - don't expect to receive the same opportunities (e.g. work from home, leave early, come in late, etc.) as those employees with kids/families. -HR department is a joke (not that they don’t work hard, but 3 people for a global company?) -Everyone is afraid they can and will be fired at any moment.24
